20th Century Women (2016)

I wish this was a film made before film was even invented. This movie was as fast moving as a stalled-out car. None of the characters had moved forward in their lives and the relationships were really awkward and dumb. I hated the Gerwig & Crudup relationship and don’t even get me started on the main boy’s relationship with Elle Fanning. Talk about being a giant cuckold. The movie isn’t incredibly long, but it felt like it took centuries to go through. I wouldn’t recommend this at all unless you seek frustration.

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2010)

This movie gets one point for every section of the centipede. This film is awful. Horrible dialogue (even the German and Japanese dialogue is bad) the acting is also very sub-par. A lot of credit is given to the Doctor but I even think he serves up more ham than a Christmas dinner. The plot is sickening and even though it is original, did this need to be made? I found no entertainment value to this and it just made my late-night snack want to come back up. My stomach still roils with revulsion. I feel sorry for the three actors who had to be the centipede and I hope they were paid well, because the embarrassment their families probably had to go through with this being released must have been substantial. Humanity is better than this to create a film so devoid of art. I hope to never see something this bad again, although I’m not getting my hopes up with the direction horror films are going torture over fear seems to be the new trend. Even the end of the film is as nourishing as being the tail end of a human centipede. Devoid of any flavor or panache.
